Star producer Bellamkonda Suresh’s son Srinivas made a promising debut with VV Vinayak’s Alludu Seenu. His second film Speedunnodu is ready for a grand release today. Our Palli Batani correspondent caught Srinivas for a nice interview. Here is the transcript.
Q) What was the reason for doing a remake just in the start of your career ?
Ans) I was thoroughly impressed with the Tamil version. I felt that the friendship theme in the film will connect very well to the Telugu audience.
Q) What are your expectations on the film ?
Ans) I was a bit nervous for my debut film, but this time I am very confident that this film will become a bigger hit than Alludu Seenu.
Q) When did you bag this project ?
Ans) After Alludu Seenu success, I listened to various scripts but none of them have really excited me. Then, Bheemaneni Srinivas came with this script and I signed the film with no second thoughts.
Q) Can you tell us about your role ?
Ans) I will be seen as a cool guy who hails from Kurnool. Both my strength and weakness are my friends. I take any risk for the well-being of my friends.
Q) How different will the Telugu version be from Tamil film ?
Ans) Bheemaneni Srinivas made sensible changes to suit the Telugu flavour.
Q) Your experience on working with Bheemaneni Srinivas ?
Ans) He is a master in dealing with remake scripts. It was a great experience working with such an experienced director. He presented me in a completely new avatar.
Q) Why did you choose Tamannaah for the second time ?
Ans ) Tamannaah and I shared a superb onscreen chemistry with Alludu Seenu song. Tamannaah’s craze has touched new heights with Baahubali release, so we felt that she could add more craze to our project.
Q) Is your next project with Boyapati Srinu confirmed ?
Ans) Yes, I will work with Boyapati Srinu later this year. More details will be announced soon.
